Some Nier news. Not sure which manufacture is making Kaine and A2.
Haro >>> R2D2Ew Haro, that R2D2 wannabe.
I will show myself out now.
Also are SD Gundam not as common as HG ones?
Thanks! Even my phone was dancing on the grave of my wallet today as a bunch of the news panels were about WonHobby!
Definitely not difficult if you do not miss the preorder. I remember you want Hololive Gamers, correct? As their grey prototypes are out, I think they will be up for preorder around August~September. Those with painted prototypes will arrive sooner, around June or July.Thanks! Even my phone was dancing on the grave of my wallet today as a bunch of the news panels were about WonHobby!
My only sanctuary is hoping these releases are difficult to get hold of and import!
This is something that I've just noticed quite recently. What's up with those grey figurines, are we supposed to paint them?Goodsmile killed so many wallets today.
EdwardTivrusky Kvik You may want to check the news. The site is quite buggy so do check all the tags.
Oh, not like that. Grey color is useful for checking faulty places as well as making the details easier to see. So companies usually apply a top coat to the prototype for checking and showcase. In 3D rendering software, the 3D object is grey in default due to the same reasons. The top coat is something like this:This is something that I've just noticed quite recently.

Depends. Some do some don't. Scale figures are definitely painted manually, which is why they are so expensive.What, so figures are actually painted manually?
Depends on where you are, but generally ebay or something like that.Where would I buy pre-assembled (second hand) gunpla?
Or is that not something that people normal do?
Yeah, these are also good options. They're more like a figure than a kit, but you can buy them brand new. For a cheaper option, you can also take a look at G-Frames. There's some quick assembling required, attaching the armors to the inner frame.Try searching for Robot Tamashii or Metal Build instead.
I have a Metal Build RX-78 Gundam and it's pretty cool, I wish that they also had Chars Zaku-II but they only have a regular green one.Try searching for Robot Tamashii or Metal Build instead.
Yeah... pretty boring. I honestly didn't know Altina was a popular character.Look, I love Kiseki, but Rean and Altina figures alone are kind of Zzz...
Wake me up when there are prototypes for 1/7 (CS2) Aurelia le Guin or (Azure)Arianrhod
Iirc, Altina was in the top 5 of Falcom's Character Poll they had during their 40th anniversary. But the funny thing is -- Estelle is also in the top 5.I honestly didn't know Altina was a popular character.
You like army brats-wearing berets, huh?Noel (probably not a popular choice, but I like her).
Well then, I guess Tio must be up there because in my brain she is similar to Altina.Iirc, Altina was in the top 5 of Falcom's Character Poll they had during their 40th anniversary. But the funny thing is -- Estelle is also in the top 5.
Loli characters sell like hotcakes in JP though, so I get why the decision was made.

Noel's fun though, I like her banter with Wazy a lot.
I follow a youtuber who did refurbishment on old things and he often uses hydrogen peroxide. If you prefer other methods, here are some but I am not sure if they would work:What's the easiest way to fix yellowed parts of a figure? I bought this secondhand SDGO MKII from a marketplace and some parts in the heads have become yellowish. I've watched some fixes from YT and most of them use some kind of hazardous chemicals.
Cool, thanks for the tips.I follow a youtuber who did refurbishment on old things and he often uses hydrogen peroxide. If you prefer other methods, here are some but I am not sure if they would work:
Knowing how to clean yellowed plastic can make you a superhero when your child's favorite white plastic toy has started to yellow. It can also be great for ...cleaning.lovetoknow.com
Honestly, I'm not a fan of sanding as it can deform the parts if you're not careful. If you cut the parts nicely, you wouldn't need to sand them afterwards. First use the nippers to cut the parts from the runners, then clean the remaining nub with your hobby/precision knife. That usually does the trick. The most important thing is when cutting with the nippers, you need to cut from inside, facing outward, and don't cut too close to the parts so it won't leave stress marks. You probably need to watch some YT video for this.texhnolyze
I ordered a bunch of model kits for different things. I ordered me some god hand nippers , I still need to find some good files though to sand the suckers down though. Any suggestions? Also what are some recommendations for air brushing? Including the air pump thing (basically recommend me a good set up type of thing)
I've done sand paper on popsicle sticks and that always took me forever and I wanted something to make it go by a lot faster.
